Yep, trust me I was VERY cautious on where my hands were during this entire process. Left one in my pocket and wore rubber shoes. Also had the wife in there just in case something happened to me .

Kinda scary I'll admit, but I used common sense and it all went smooth.

How to conceal 12-2 wire coming from wall?

Cutting the wires upstairs where the radiator used to be was not a good idea. That would make it more difficult for someone who wanted to reuse the wires later.


Do you get coverage you can count on? From the bag of fertilizer? From your lawn sprinklers?
